Engage in southern hospitality with Rick and Barbara Trolsen in their historic Old Algiers Pointe 1930’s craftsman cottage. Musicians will enjoy the sitting in with Rick Trolsen, trombonist/pianist/composer during his weekly Friday night gig at Old Point Bar, only a few blocks away. Rick, a gifted musician is usually performing nightly or daily.
Algiers continues to be a home and haven for musicians, writers, artist, and snowbirds. A state of the art recording studio can be reserved in the neighborhood. Rick enjoys mentoring at jazz camp or hosting up-and-coming international protégés. Barbara’s creativity and candid knowledge of the New Orleans’ scene will keep you coming back. This amazing couple met and fell in love while working on the Mississippi Queen Riverboat sailing up and down the river from New Orleans to St. Paul Minnesota and have celebrated over thirty years of bliss traveling the world of music and friends and residing in New Orleans.
Have you been to Algiers Point? It really is an amazing neighborhood. It is directly across the Mississippi from the French Quarter, at the sharpest bend in the whole river. Surrounded by water on three sides, this neighborhood is a waterfront community whose historic significance protects it from commercial development and industry. The riverfront levee is easily accessible to everyone, and is a wonderful place to walk, bicycle, or relax. There are great restaurants and neighborhood bars, places to hear music and historic churches. Kids love the numerous playgrounds in the area, and the International School of Louisiana is one of the best schools in the city. The Tout de Suite is a great coffee shop, and a place to get to know your neighbors. All of these places are a short walk away from this large and sunlit apartment. There is a ferryboat that leaves from the Point, just a few blocks from the apartment. It runs constantly during the day and takes passengers to Canal Street, in the middle of downtown New Orleans.
Catch the amazing sunset, New Orleans skyline and the mighty Mississippi River with the locals on the levy directly across from Old Point Bar. You may enjoy miles of paths along the levy or walk to the historic Hubbell library. Ride the ferry over to New Orleans to the Canal Street outlet mall, Aquarium, Insectarium, Harrah’s Casino or take the streetcar to Café du Monde in the French Quarter or uptown to the Audubon Zoo, passing through the famous Garden District on St. Charles.
Seldom do we endure any winter; the fire pit, porch and two decks are a charming retreat or opportunity to spur your creativity. With Rick and Barbara you will always capture a little something extra and his repertoire is much like gumbo, a blend of Western European, African, Caribbean and North and South Americas’ influences. Contact Rick or Barb to secure your vacation rental and you are guaranteed lagniappe and a gumbo of local cuisine, music, and art.
